The PhD program in educational policy and evaluation prepares scholars who teach and conduct rigorous, high-impact and transdisciplinary research on education policy that advances our collective understanding of preK-20 education.

Doctoral students in the educational policy and evaluation program engage in systematic analyses of education policies in a variety of settings, including schools, universities, research centers, government agencies and nongovernmental organizations.

The program emphasizes intensive training in the theory, methods and practice of education policy research and evaluation and an area of specialization supported by current faculty expertise.

Educational policy and evaluation students work closely with nationally and internationally recognized faculty members on collaborative and independent research projects that result in policy briefs, reports, scholarly articles and engagement in education policy. The program also provides opportunities for internships in applied settings and varied experiences in scholarly publishing.

Students are expected to engage in the doctoral program full time and are supported by Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College with funding renewable for four years with continued progress.

Applications for this program are accepted September 1 through December 1 for students starting the following year.
